“The Polytechnic is the modern root of democracy in the country. It was a turning point, a youth uprising that will constantly remind us that no regime, no matter how much violence it uses, no matter how many powerful allies it has inside and outside the country, can resist when the people decide to pave the way for democracy. “
This was stressed by the spokesperson of SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance, Nassos Iliopoulos, speaking about today’s anniversary of the Polytechnic, on r / s “Sto Kokkino 105.5 FM”, to underline that “Democracy, justice, equality always go through the great popular struggles are never given away “and for this reason” it is not at all accidental that the Polytechnic still continues to bother “. He commented that “it is no coincidence that three central officials of the current government – Mr. Georgiadis, Mr. Voridis and Mr. Plevris – tried to base their careers on the denial of the dead of the Polytechnic”.
He stressed that the Polytechnic continues to live in its struggles today and that the central struggle today is “to protect society against a deadly pandemic, the struggle to win life.” He pointed out that this battle is being fought “first of all by the heroes of the front line, abandoned by a government that neither wants nor can defend public health”.
Mr. Iliopoulos pointed out that “unfortunately, in November we are already counting 985 losses”, while in an interview with r / s Parapolitika 90.1, he repeated the question that SYRIZA addresses to the government: “how many of the losses we have had so far did they happen outside the ICU? ” At the same time, he called on her to provide information on “what are the mortality rates in the ICU, especially after the recent complaint of Mr. Vasilakopoulos that many of the ICUs built during the pandemic were sketchy and did not meet the appropriate standards of hospitalization.”
He added that “from all over Greece, there are complaints from the employees of the public hospitals about huge shortages, such as that a doctor on duty can correspond to 120 cases”, while he said that “a doctor from Volos who made complaints about the situation in his hospital, today he was informed by the city newspapers that he is being disciplined “.
Continuing the strong criticism of the government, he stated that Kyriakos Mitsotakis “has emerged as a key denier of reality”, adding that “yesterday’s image of Mr. Mitsotakis was absolutely typical, at a time when 80 losses were recorded in the country, he promised a covidfree summer”. Mr. Iliopoulos spoke about “a prime minister who even now refuses to take the necessary measures in order to save human lives and avoid a new lockdown. “It refuses at first to proceed with the strengthening of the National Health System and the order of the private clinics”.
He noted that “the recruitment of private doctors is not a solution”, as “the large private clinics that now remain covidfree need to fight”. But also: “to have a free mass prescribing test for vaccinated and unvaccinated people so that we can control the spread within the community, to return telework where possible and obviously to cancel the unacceptable plan implemented by Ms. Kerameos, for the merger of 1,000 school departments in the midst of a pandemic! “
Regarding the economy, he said that “if the government today proceeds with a scheme to regulate and write off the private debt born in the pandemic, it will keep more small and medium-sized enterprises open, will keep jobs and will increase public revenues.” He noted, however, that if the government “does not do any of these things and has given up its self-evident duty to defend and protect society, then all it has to do is leave.”
